It is observed that Beastmode also exploits vulnerabilities found in TP-Link Tapo C200 IP cameras, Huawei HG532 routers, NUUO, and Netgear’s video surveillance solutions, and discontinued D-Link products.
In this context, to not be the targets of attacks by the botnet may carry out, it is recommended to immediately upgrade the vulnerable versions to the current versions that fix the vulnerabilities. In addition, it is important to block the IoC findings related to the Beastmode Botnet from the security solutions in use.
